Frequently Asked Questions

1. What should I write about?
We want deep tutorial content about NoSQL databases, especially Elasticsearch and it's components, such as Logstash and Kibana. How to integrate Elasticsearch with other NoSQL databases (e.g. integrating Nutch or Kafka with Elasticsearch) is also highly desired. Beyond that, we will let you write about the topic. We do not need to be pitched, but our content director will work with you on headlines, titles, and other content for which readers search.

2. How much will I make?
We pay $400 for each article, and $100 for updates to existing articles.

3. When do I get paid?
When your piece gets published, you will get paid via check or Paypal. If you prefer to utilize our Upwork organization, we can pay this way as well, though you are responsible for their processing fee.

4. How do I submit my work?
Our content director will invite you to our collaboration platform, CoSchedule. We like this platform because you can then write your piece in Google Docs.

5. May I use the blog to promote myself, my work, my company, or my products?
We don't object to any mentions or plugs. However, we want the work to be primarily tutorial in nature. Blatant sales pitches that detract from the quality of the piece will be rejected.

6. Do I need to promote your service?
We would appreciate if you would use our product (no cost) to build your tutorial, and we would appreciate positive mentions where appropriate without becoming obnoxious or detracting from the work.

7. How many articles do I need to submit?
Nobody is held to a quota on submissions. You can write one or several. We will publish as many as you can write, as long as the material is good and useful to our readers. You should check in with our content director to make certain your articles will be useful.

8. Do I own my content?
You will be granting us ownership to the content, however, you will retain an exclusive license to re-use with restrictions. Essentially, we do not want duplicate content appearing anywhere else.

9. Will you withhold taxes?
You will be classified as an independent contractor. Whether we issue you an IRS 1099 will depend on several external factors such as the structure of the organization from which you invoice us. Thus, we will not withhold taxes, but you will be responsible for paying appropriate taxes to your jurisdiction, wherever that may be.

To be considered, you should have some knowledge of Elasticsearch, the ELK stack, and NoSQL databases.
